Run your virtual Rimi Riga Marathon
We know you have put a big effort into training and preparing to May 16 and 17. So have we.
And just like you, we are very eager to celebrate running and keep the spirit of marathon alive, even it is not possible together in person.
We invite you to go for a Family Run (4.2 km) on May 16 on your favorite route with your family in any place of the world. For toddlers create an obstacle course from materials you have or simply run 200 m or 400 m long course.
And put on your running shoes on May 17 and run you chosen distance on your favorite route. Those of you who are in Latvia right now, please, don’t try to run the new courses of the Rimi Riga Marathon. We will run them together in autumn when we celebrate the 30th Rimi Riga Marathon.
To create a sense of unity, we invite runners to start running at virtual starting times for each distance. Please run as much as you want and how prepared you are.
Suggested start times:
- 9.00 – 42 km and 21km or any other distance over 10 km
- 10.00 – 10 km
- 11.00 – 6 km
Start area: any place of your choice in Latvia or in the World
Take selfie of your favorite highlights on the course – trails, roads, bridges, parks and squares, monuments – and share with us, so we have this feeling, that we are united and together in our passion for running even if we run individually.
